Freedom-U-SDK limiting CPU cores to 1


(Talha) #1

Hello,

I am trying to experiment with multi core RISC-V programming, using the Freedom-U-SDK and there seems to be a problem, Whenever i boot into linux using QEMU, it is being built with a single core, Is there a way for me to change that ? And get it to work with multi cores ?

The number of cores is a qemu option. Try adding -smp 4 to the qemu command for 4 cores.

Thank you, it’s working now. I had to edit the make file to include the -smp option for qemu.
